My winter coat is too big.
It'll do for the remainder of this winter. And it was a FIND at $30, practically brand new, at a used clothing shop. And it's a Columbia. Those things are $200 brand new. I like the colours! I like the style! Now, I just don't like the size. And to think, it was so tight on me at one point that I had to suck in my gut to get the zipper to meet and zip up. And now... the wind goes up the coat. It FLOATS on me! Horrible. Hate these nasty side-effects. And they say eating Primal isn't expensive. Sheesh!
Had a wonderful spread of food on Saturday night with a bunch of friends....and all I really wanted was the dripping hunk of beef and the skewered shrimp! Seriously??? Didn't even bother with potatoes....
Okay, seriously, being Primal is totally going to cost me when I go grocery shopping next month! I want shrimp, and crab, and lobster, and scallops... AND I DON'T LIKE SEAFOOD!!!!!!! My body is almost crying for these foods, I think I am going to have to give in and get some of them!
I have all these bottles of OTC medications that have gone to waste and are now expired...
My bathroom is full of expensive cosmetics that I really don't need...
All of my neighbors recognize me because I'm always out walking my dog...
Man, I really miss having uncontrollable cravings for self-destructive food...

My fairly new yoga pants fell off during exercise class last night. Thank God it is only women. I cut a hole at the waist hoping to tie the elastic tighter, but it is sewn in.
I had to buy a case of 5doz eggs last night because my two year old keeps eating all the eggs - he already went through 3doz in two weeks!
When I try to clean out the pantry and "get rid" of the CW foods that the kids used to love they take 2-3 bites, declare it yucky and ask for meat or eggs or nuts or fruits...
I am starting to feel really bad about feeding all my animals processed animal food - but I can't afford for them to go raw/primal until I have a job...

Rita, that's the most awesome bib ever. I need to get one for my nephew. Where did you find it?
Also, Ayla, I hear you!! I have an $80 bottle of fancy acne treatment that I don't need anymore. I am NOT throwing it out, but what the hell do I do with it now?!?!
Since the first of the year, we have to wear "uniforms" at work... logo'd polo with either black or khaki pants. (that's my real gripe)
I found the PERFECT pants for work -- they fit great, look good, are nice and tough -- at the thrift store!! Wish I could find 5-6 more pairs, but the company on the label only supplies LARGE work groups like McDonald's or FedEx (pout).
So not looking forward to when they're too big for me anymore and I can't find another pair anywhere in the universe!
Started 7/5/11 at 274 lbs
